On my laptop, dell Inspiron 15 5000 series, whenever I watch a video at first it is fine, but I start to notice a sound delay, it keeps growing until the video is unwatchable, at first I thought it was only youtube, but when I watched other things online like movies it would also begin to delay. I have already updated my sound drivers but it still doesn't work, any ideas or help?

Have you checked out the ISP connection to make sure there isn't a delay in that? Internet speeds can fluctuate. Especially if there are a lot of people on a specific WiFi connection. Even if no one else is on it, or no one else is having the problem, you still may want to reboot the modem/router and start fresh.

Next I would try restarting the laptop. So many people never do that.

Then I would try clearing out your browser history and cache (as well as cookies), just remember to save things you may need, like log in information.

You may also want to try another browser and see if you get the same issue.
